There has been considerable agita
tion recently in regard to rest rooms.
Greenwood is a progressive city and
vith. such an increase in its annual
business it seems very appropriate
indeed to exert every effort to keep
abreast with the times, as we have
take on new life and activity. There
is as much or more business done in
Greenwood than any other town in
the Palmetto State of the same size.
The fail trade will soon be on us
and it is our desire to see the merch
ants of this city take hold of the mat
ter as it means considerable more
business will be done here if the
proper provisions are made to induce
the buyers to do their shopping. So
why can't the business men of the
city get together and see if we can't
have a place to accommodate people
when they come here to do their shop
There are a great many towns,
which are making arrangements such
as suggested by the above from our
Greenwood contemporary. It is a
very important matter and really
should have the attention of all
towns and cities, wh' h depend upon
a large country trade.
It would seem to us that the old
court house might to fitted up and
,one of the rooms used for the purpose
suggested in this editorial and it could
be done in connection with the pro
position, which the ladies are agita
ting, to have this building turned over
to them for the purpose of a public
library. Of course in order to do this
it would be necessary to have some
work and repairs done on the old
building, and in addition, the park
should be extended to the front and
sides Pf the building similar to the
one which is in the rear, so that it
would be impossible to have wagons
and buggies driven up to the building
and the horses hitched against it.
Such an arrangement would beauti
fy the public square and would make
the rest room here suggested very
easily of access to our friends from
the country, and also practically in
the centre of the business section.
We simply make this suggestion and
throw out these hints. We really do
not know what is the intention of
those * charge of this old building,
nor do we have any idea of what will
be done. We realize that there is
very great difference of opinion as
to what disposition should be made of
this old building, but its does seem
that it woild be a great waste of pro
-tear it down.,
The public square should not be
used as a wagon yard. We should
have a wagon yard, in some portion
* of the city that would be convenient
and there should be some sheds put
u lp in the wagon yard and water for
the horses so that instead of having
wagons and buggies standing in the
publie square the animais in the sun
or cold, they could be given better
It is well to agitate this question
and get the views of our people upon
it, and if possible, have unanimity of
action in whatever is done.
The city coneil of Anderson has
passed an ordinance adopting the cur
few, which is rung every night at 10
o'clock and all ehildren under four
teen years of age are required to be
at their homes unless accompanied by
some older person. This is the first
city in this state that we know of to
* adopt the curfew. We believe it is
the proper thing to do, but 10 o'clock
is rather late. It should be sounded
not later than 9 o'clock and in the
winter season when the nights are
long it would not be bad to have the
curfew rung earlier even than 9
The town of Clear Lake in Iowa,
has passed an ordinance, which pro
hibits the ringing of church bells on
the Saibbath. It is the intention of
'the mayor to make "the place as
quiet on the day of rest as a grave
yard at midnight.''
That, it seems to us, is carrying the
Sabbath observance law as far as the
most extreme Sabbatarianis could de
The state board of health of Texas
adopted some very stringent rules in
regard to sanitation for tuberculosis.
In connection with the address by
Dr. Wvehe before the County Medi
cal Soceiety a short time ago which
was printed in The Herald and News,
it may he interesting to know what
-the board of health of the state of
Gnks in regard to this disease
and also the rules, which have been
adopted in the effort to prevent the
disease in that state.
The* follwing are thei rules:
--1Tubercular vicums are not al.low

in. iL any school, ehurch, or bake
'Burlap is prohibited for a floor
covering; passengers on trains are not
allowed to wash their teeth over wash I
basins, and careless handling is made t

"Floors of public buildings must e
be swept every day after being sprink-' I
led with sawdust wet with for- t
maldehyde. Boarding house, hotel and (
restaurant ice boxes must be scoured
with acid once a week.
"In jails a prisoner must have 3,000 i
cubic feet of air per hour. walls must i
be whitewashed every month and
painted every six months."
By permission of the Business Mag
azine of Knoxville, Tenn., we print
on the first page f The Herald and f
News today, including cuts, an article
which appeared in the August number
of that magazine in regard to New

probably appeared in The Herald and

the cuts are reproduced so that our 1
readers may know just how the write- e
up appeared in the magazine.
There is a growing sentiment in the.
state that Clemson Cdllege should be
owned by the state. This idea was first
sugested, if memory is not at fault, a
by Mr. MeMahan when that gentle- t
man offered for governor last year. I
The idea grows out of the fact that a
while the college is supported by the
state, the state does not, nor can it j
ever, control the institution as things i
now stand. This condition obtains by t
reason of the fact that the life trus
tees appointed by Mr. Clemson with
the power of naming their successors.
constitute a majority of the board.
The change would cost the sta-te quite
a tidy sum and would help the Clem
son heirs considerably in a financial
We are inclined to agree with the
Index. If Clemson is to be a state
college it should be under the con
trol of the state and not under the
control of Mr. Clen1son. It would be
better for the institution and better
for the state. Every citizen of south
Carolina realizes and appreciates the
good work that is being done by Clem
son, and there is no disposition and
would be none to do anything that
would in the slightest cripple its use
We notice that the Georgia legisla
ture is collecting the privilege tax
for the ostensible purpose of support
ing agricultural schools and the pro
made in the last legis
lature to increase the tax ffom fif
teen to twenty-five cents so as to in
rease the revenue for this purpose,
It would seem that if Georgia could
do this that it might be easy for i
South Carolina to let this tax, which
is a similar one in this state, go into1
the state treasury and make direct
appropriations for the support of,
Clemson just as we do for other i16- i
stitutions of higher learning. We t
have been told that if this was done i
it would be very easy for the ferti-li- a
zer companies, under -the decision of j
Chief Justice Fuller in the case of 1
Patapsco Guano Company against (
North Carolina, to have.the entire tax j
knoked up, and therefore, the whole ,
of this tax has gone direct to Clem- ~
son ce1lege and sometimes the college E
has more money than it ouzht to hie i
but. :>f course, this is n ;t the ques
tio. vhich we started out here to dis- a
cuss a'nd we 'repeat that we agree I
with the index that South Carolina i
ought to aave entire s.cai of thisI
institution just as it hias of thie ote e

Dog Homing Instinct.
The other day, writes a correspon- i
dent, a dog was sent by carriage to
Brandon station, in Norflok, en route r
for London, from Buckenham hall.
At Ely it slipped its collar as the 4
guard took it out to give it water,
the time was after dark on a winter
evening and the dog dashed away
and could not be found.
At 6.30 the following morning one
of the stablemen at Buckenham heard]
a dog* whining and howling under
the window. It was the same dog re
turned. The distance from Ely to
Buckenham is computed at 17 miles.
The dog is a female spaniel and it
is virtually certain that its local
knowledge~of the contury about Buck
eiham on the side toward Ely was li
r.ited to a mile from the former. This
v>uld leave an unknown tract of 16
r. ~les to thravel through dark in a
sinle night. By what sense was it
